Titler: A Kinder, Gentler Singing Dictator (in a D-Cup)

“Pardon! Bonjour! Fromage!” (photo by Rafe Baron.)

One balmy summer’s eve a couple years ago, Herr Titler came into my life. I was standing in the wings of an ancient Brooklyn theater, reeling in the chaos of Amanda Palmer’s boisterous Fuck The Back Row film/music/theater revue night, when I beheld a broad-shouldered figure in a slinky cocktail gown and perilous high heels. With his sultry voice, his sharply parted/pomaded hair and villainous moustache, Titler was simultaneously demure yet forceful, domineering yet somehow… dainty. I tell ya, he KILLED it that night.

Having basked in his commanding presence, I have trouble understanding what zealots on either side of the ongoing Dr. Steel vs Dr. Horrible debate are getting their jodhpurs in such a twist over! For my money, Titler is all anyone could ever want in a singing musical madman, with the unexpected (but welcome) bonus of a truly fetching décolletage.

Comrades! For your consideration:

    Boyd Rice wishes he was this amazing.

    About time you wrote about him! He looks so good in a black slinky shift dress. And the whole “Diane Chukowski” and “Ring ring, hello mom it’s me I think I’m gay.” I laugh, I cry, I want to grow a mustache.

    Love the “Ring ring, hello mom it’s me I think I’m gay.” and the ‘down by the docks, songs’ Hilarious. How come I’ve never heard of Titler before? Just for that, I had to place you in my follow feed, so I can see what other crazy ass references you have access to.

    allgood2, welcome to the blog. We hope that you and other articulate Joss Whedon fans (and Dr. Steel fans) who stumbled onto this site due to the Doctor/Doctor face-off stick around!

    Coilhouse: come for the drama, stay for the dramamine.

    Well now…it seems we have a late entry into the “most entertaining singing madman” contest.

    Now if we can only get one of those insufferably “cute” Disney kids to dress up as Stalin we’d have quite the show!

    Ah, just one more reason to love the fuhrer!

    Maybe we can have a Titler vs. L.S.D. thread now. ;)

    While the satire of L.S.D. is a bit more refined than the post-modernism of Titler, and thus earning a place in my heart that can only be inhabited by “Springtime for Hitler”, Titler does in fact have a great rack.

  9. Nadya Says:

    Shut up, fanboy! Let’s fight! Titler’s MySpace was up FIRST. Mel Brooks OBVIOUSLY ripped him off. And so did Hitler.

  10. Jon Munger Says:

    Yeah? Well, Titler’s tits are obviously a reference to the twin glowing suns of Mel Brooks and the Sun, one of which gives off all light and the other of which is a sustained nuclear reaction. Read a book and maybe you’d learn something about real typing, like me!1!11

    Oh man, Titler is wonderful. I saw those shorts at Fuck The Back Row and nearly died in amazement. Titler FTW!
